Re: Ascend GRF

Wow, Phil, you (and others) really like to make your vendors' lives miserable giving them really difficult to solve problems like stuffing slow interfaces into a box optimized for fast ones. That high-speed routers do not support slow interfaces is a design feature. I think, however, there is a market for "fake" BFRs (and GRFs, which are not BFRs) that are really hybrid fast/slow routers in disguise. Like a 12000 that you can put a DS3 or DS1 into, or an ersatz SSP. Router vendors take note: operators (even a really clueful one who knows who he is and is still sulking about DS3s not fitting into the 12000) will pay for the VW BUG engine and frame under a Rolls Royce body, just so long as the hood ornament looks good enough to fool their friends and it works under their real traffic load. --:) Sean.
